Week 2 Day 1

Remaining In The Word

The way to have Christ living in you is to have His word in you. The first thing is to become proficient in spending time with the Master by having quiet time with Him. The second and Third disciplines is living in the word and praying in faith. Jesus said in John 8:31-32, " If you hold to my teachings, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." Think of the word as food, you cannot grow unless you regularly partake in His word.

A Daily Appointment
One way to know Christ's teaching is through habit of daily Bible readings, meditation, and prayer. The ones that God use mightily are those who have discerned God's truth and Power in their private time.
Joshua 1:8 says of the word "Meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it."
Memorizing put God's word in your head. Meditating puts it in your heart. With God's word in your heart you can face any circumstance
